ZAYWHAT!

Will Roby be back next year?

Recommended Posts

Chris Heady had a fabulous article in today's OWH about Roby.  One little snippet:

"In a visit one night in Dixon, Miles laid out where he saw Roby's future.  An NCAA tournament win at Nebraska, the first in history.  And, after that, the pros.  

"Isaiah," Miles said that night.  "I want you to be my first NBA draft pick."

 

One more:

One time, at halftime of a game near the end of Nebraska's season, all three assistant coaches and Miles sat Roby down on a stool in the locker room.

"Shoot it.  Don't hesitate.  Just shoot it," a coach told Roby.

"Every time?  You want me to shoot it every time I get the ball?" Roby asked.

"Yes!" the four coaches shouted in unison.

The rest of the locker room laughed.

CBS Sports HQ has Isaiah Roby as a small forward out of Northeastern. Geez, guys. That's adding insult to injury.

 

Surprised they didn't say "New England" because NE doesn't scream Nebraska. I still see NB for our state when that's clearly New Brunswick. Sigh. ?

Which is why journalists are encouraged not to use postal codes. Either spell it out or use understandable abbreviations:

  • Which is AR? Ark., not Ariz.
  • And AL? Alabama, not Alaska, which is AK, which also isn't for Ark.
  • How about NE? Neb., not Nev.
  • And CO? That's Colo., not Clothing Optional

No need to slow down readers who haven't memorized all the postal codes in North America.

I'm going to go out on a limb and predict Roby won't be back for his senior year...

 

Yeah it seems like the chances of it happening are definitely pretty slim now.

Yeah, that synopsis seems to have covered the confusing zips (not Akron). ?

Wish the guy good luck. There's PT to be had in Dallas at the moment as they're in full rebuild mode still (I think. I ignored this season in the NBA). 

 

That means there's at least room on the bench, which gives him a chance to make a roster that I don't think he would've made for  most other teams. 

 

Leave it on the court, Zay. Get on that team.

As it stands right now, there might be one roster spot that a few guys would be fighting for. Things will change this summer though. The mavs have cap space and will look to build a roster through free agency to contend next year. If Porzingis is healthy, he and Doncic give you two guys with legitimate superstar potential. When those two figure each other out, it’ll be poetry in motion.
